StayclassySanDiego.com - Kyla Ebbert was escorted off a Southwest Airlines flight two months ago for wearing an outfit far less revealing than a bikini top. After the plane filled, and the flight attendants began their safety spiel, Ebbert was asked to step off the plane by a customer service supervisor, identified by the airline only as “Keith.” They walked out onto the jet bridge, where Keith told Ebbert her clothing was inappropriate and asked her to change. She explained she was flying to Tucson for only a few hours and had brought no luggage. “I asked him what part of my outfit was offensive,” she said. “The shirt? The skirt? And he said, 'The whole thing.' ” Keith asked her to go home, change and take a later flight. She refused, citing her appointment. The plane was ready to leave, so Keith relented. He had her pull up her tank top a bit, pull down her skirt a bit, and return to her seat.
Usually I’m not a big “cause” guy. But this is too much. I can’t just sit by and watch an innocent slut be embarrassed and ridiculed for dressing like a two bit whore. After all isn’t this what every blue blooded American dreams of when they are traveling to begin with? A little eye candy to ogle at to pass the time? I mean if chicks are getting kicked off the plane for dressing too provocatively what’s next? Women need to wear birkas? Nationwide curfews? No I can’t sit by and do nothing. I need to put the power of the Stool to good use. I’m calling for a nationwide boycott of Southwest Airlines until one of the following three things happens.
#1 Southwest fires the gay customer service agent (Keith) who accosted this fine young lady.
#2 Southwest writes Kyla a personal apology and gives her two plane tickets to come to Boston to attend a future Barstool Sports Signature Party. Hell, if Southwest doesn’t step up I may do it myself.
#3 Southwest gives me two tickets to Hawaii in January. I have a wedding there and I can’t afford to go unless some travel agent steps up and give me tickets or does a trade with me for advertising.
So there you have it. Those are the only 3 things that will cause me to end this boycott.
